  • Reggie Bullock (foot) ruled out Tuesday
    Reggie Bullock (right foot sprain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Only limited fantasy impact here, as Bullock has been on the fringes of the Detroit rotation for most of the season. Stanley Johnson may see a few more minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:30 pm
  • Tobias Harris back to the bench on Tuesday
    Jon Leuer will replace Tobias Harris in the Pistons starting lineup Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: This won't have much impact on Harris' fantasy value. In fact, Tobias is posting better numbers off the bench. In 47 games as a starter this season, he is averaging 15.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 33.1 minutes. In 27 games as a reserve, Harris is averaging 16.6 points and 5.4 boards in 28.9 minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:27 pm
  • Taurean Prince starting again on Tuesday
    Taurean Prince will draw another start on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) are all out, and Bazemore is the only player expected back on Wednesday. That means Prince is looking at a significant workload tonight and could have some nice short-term value this whole week. In his previous start, Prince went off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:19 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. starting for Devin Booker
    Derrick Jones Jr. will start in place of Devin Booker (ankle) on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Booker has an "ankle" injury, but there have been some reports that the tanking Suns are just resting him. Jones is more of a defender who rarely scores outside of the paint, so there's not much fantasy upside here. In five starts this season, Jones has averaged 4.0 points and 4.6 rebounds. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:09 pm
  • Dubs will provide update on Durant Wednesday
    The Warriors will provide an update on Kevin Durant (knee) on Wednesday.

    Advice: Durant has looked great while going through his pregame routines as of late, and he'll be re-evaluated on Wednesday, after which, the Warriors will offer an update. Durant was initially targeting a mid-April return, but we'll have to wait for tomorrow's update to see if anything has changed on that speculative timetable. He might be worth a speculative add in deep leagues with things trending in a positive direction, but know that he'll be on a strict minutes limit upon his return. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:40 pm
  • Khris Middleton (illness) will play Tuesday
    Coach Jason Kidd said that Khris Middleton (stomach virus) will play Tuesday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Middleton missed shootaround this morning, but fortunately is feeling better. Fantasy owners can breathe a sign of relief and feel comfortable inserting him into their starting lineup. Middleton is averaging 16.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 treys over the Bucks last 15 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:41 pm
  • Anthony, Rose not listed as starters vs. MIA
    Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose are not being listed as starters in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup with Miami.

    Advice: First and foremost, the game notes are notoriously unreliable, so things certainly could change as we get closer to Wednesday's tip, but it does seem like New York is at least contemplating dishing out rest days to their veterans. The game notes list Ron Baker, Courtney Lee, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez as the starters for Wednesday night, and owners can expect to get a more official update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:55 pm
  • Maurice Ndour sent down to the D-League
    Maurice Ndour has been sent down to the D-League.

    Advice: Ndour is rarely in the rotation for New York, so there won't be any fantasy consequences with this D-League send down. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:43 am
  • Nick Young will pick up a DNP-CD Tuesday
    Nick Young will pick up yet another DNP-CD on Tuesday.

    Advice: Young has only managed to get into the rotation twice over the Lakers past eight games, but Luke Walton did say he hasn't officially shut down Young just yet, and that at some point he may be able to return to the rotation. However, until that happens, Swaggy-DNP is safe to leave on the waiver wire in all formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am
  • Corey Brewer will start Tuesday vs. Wizards
    Corey Brewer will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington, with Brandon Ingram (knee) unavailable.

    Advice: Brewer put up three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one triple and two blocks through 19 minutes as a starter his last time out, so he can't be considered a viable target in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:16 am
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) out Tuesday vs. Wizards
    Brandon Ingram (right knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: With Ingram on the sidelines, Corey Brewer could be looking at another start, and guys like David Nwaba and Larry Nance should see some increased minutes with the second unit. Ingram will be traveling with the team to Minnesota for Thursday's matchup with the Wolves, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for that one. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:09 am
  • Jonas Jerebko (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jonas Jerebko was unable to finish practice on Tuesday due to a sore knee.

    Advice: At this point, we have to consider Jerebko questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. The fantasy impact is minimal, as he is averaging just 11.1 minutes per game over his last four appearances. Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller may see a few extra minutes if Jerebko does not play on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:50 am
  • Khris Middleton (ill) questionable Tuesday
    Khris Middleton (stomach virus) missed shootaround this morning and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: The flu bug has claimed many a victim this season. Here's hoping that Middleton is not added to the list of players that have been forced to miss a game. If Middleton is unable to suit up, Mirza Teletovic would likely see the biggest bump in playing time. Tony Snell and Jason Terry may log a few extra minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:05 am
  • Jeff Green (back) listed as out for Wednesday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) is listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: This would be the fourth straight game Green has missed. Mario Hezonja has seen playing time increase with Green sidelined, but has been ineffective. Hezonja is averaging 5.7 points (on just 21.4 percent shooting) and 4.3 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game over Orlando's last three contests. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:59 am

  • Korver (foot) says there has been 'progress'
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss the Cavs next three games, but he says he's seen "progress" and is hopeful he won't miss the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: "I’m hopeful just a few days here to completely shut down and not trying to test it out and see how it feels," said Korver. "It’s just not quite where it needs to be for me to play like I’m really being me. Everyone keeps saying we’re going to play basketball for a long time. Get it right for the playoffs." Korver said the training staff is trying out new pads in his shoes to alleviate the soreness. J.R Smith will continue to start and log heavy minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 am
    Injured
     
  • Reggie Bullock (foot) questionable Tuesday
    Reggie Bullock (right foot sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Bullock did not play Monday in New York, after having averaged 14.8 minutes in the Pistons three previous games. Stanley Johnson and Jon Leuer may see a few extra minutes if Bullock does not play Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:01 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) still without timetable
    Dion Waiters (ankle) had an MRI, which came back negative, but is still without a timetable for his return.

    Advice: The Heat only have nine games left this season, including a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday. Waiters is running out of time to get back in the mix. Josh Richardson will continue to start and log heavy minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:59 am
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This is not surprising, as the Sixers also play on Wednesday and they have previously kept Henderson out of back-to-back sets due to his nagging hip injury. Nik Stauskas, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Justin Anderson could see a slight uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:27 am
  • Andre Iguodala finishing the season strongly
    Andre Iguodala has stepped up since Kevin Durant (knee) went down and has played his best basketball of the season this month.

    Advice: The 33-year old Iguodala credits yoga, cryotherapy and salt floating with keeping him fresh this late in the season. "He’s been fantastic," coach Steve Kerr said. "He looks incredibly athletic, bouncy and fresh." Over his last nine games, Iggy is averaging 12.4 points (on 63.1 percent shooting), 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals. The only real concern going forward is Kerr intermittently resting him. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) 'trending upward'
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play Tuesday but is planning to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix will be the fifth straight contest Bazemore has missed after injuring his knee during the Hawks loss to the Blazers on March 18. Bazemore said the rehab has been successful and he is "starting to feel good" and can now do "just about everything." The red-hot Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw another start and play heavy minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • LeBron James (neck) will play on Thursday
    LeBron James (neck) said he will be ready to play on Thursday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: LeBron took an elbow to the spine near the base of his neck in the third quarter of Monday night's loss to the Spurs. He did not return to the game. However, James downplayed the injury afterward, and he will have two full days to rest before the Cavs next contest. It's safe to assume the Cavs would prefer to limit LeBron's minutes and potentially rest him to keep him fresh for the playoffs, but with Boston overtaking Cleveland for the top seed in the East, they may not have that luxury. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:06 am
  • Danny Green returned to action on Monday March 27. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 am
  • Rodney Hood scores 20 points in win
    Rodney Hood snapped out of his funk with 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Hood scored a combined 23 points in his previous three games, but stepped up with Gordon Hayward (quad) and Alec Burks (personal) out -- Hood gets an 8.2 usage rate bump with Hayward off the court. He added six rebounds with three assists and four triples, but he's had a lot of trouble staying healthy this season and his FG percentage has been all over the place. If Hayward sits on Wednesday, Hood could be poised for another solid night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 14 w/ six assists
    Joe Johnson racked up 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists and two triples in 31 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Gordon Hayward (quad) sat this one out, so there's not much to see here. Unless Hayward misses more time, Johnson is just a low-end option in deeper leagues. Joe Ingles, who scored 19 points with five triples, is the better add if Hayward sits on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 19 points, hits five treys
    Joe Ingles started in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) in Monday's 108-100 win over the Pelicans and scored 19 points in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz were running a lot of offense through him down the stretch and he delivered, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter -- he even hit a step-back jumper over Anthony Davis in the final two minutes. He finished 7-of-13 from the field and hit all five of his 3-pointers, adding four rebounds, four assists and one steal. He won't be this good, but give him a look if we learn that Hayward will miss more time. Ingles averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 previous starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard posts 25-6-6 in rout of Cavs
    Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: About the only thing fantasy owners can complain about is the fact Leonard missed all seven of his 3-pointer attempts. He could have blown through the lane for an easy deuce most of the evening, but elected to go outside rather frequently. He still was 11-of-21 overall from the floor, so fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Danny Green records four blocked shots
    Danny Green misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's win against the Cavaliers, but he ended up with four blocked shots and two steals.

    Advice: Two of Green's swats came at the expense of none other than LeBron James, as that is the kind of night it was for the Cavaliers. Green at least dropped one in the bucket from behind the arc, his specialty, although he has struggled from the perimeter in March. Green has made just five of his past 23 triple attempts over the past seven games, so he isn't really helping any fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • LeBron takes shot to neck in lopsided loss
    LeBron James (neck) did not return to Monday's game at San Antonio after taking an elbow to the base of the neck in the third quarter.

    Advice: James likely left as a precaution, perhaps his neck was hurt, but also a bit of his pride took a shot, too. The game was well out of hand by the point he checked out and went to the locker room. LeBron will have two full days to recover before the Cavaliers, now in second place in the Eastern Conference, hit the court in the Windy City on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony hits 21 in return to lineup
    Carmelo Anthony (knee) was back in the lineup Monday against the Pistons, finishing with 21 points, five assists, three rebounds and three steals in 35 minutes.

    Advice: 'Melo didn't play with any kind of a minutes cap and he dropped in three triples to make his rotisserie owners happy. He'll look to keep it going against the Heat on Wednesday night. He scored 35 points in the first meeting in Miami back on December 6. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Joe Ingles starting for Gordon Hayward (quad)
    Joe Ingles will start in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: The Jazz will start George Hill, Rodney Hood, Ingles, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert. Ingles is worth a look if you need some stream some assists, steals and triples, as he's averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) out at least 3 more games
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss at least the next three games for Cleveland.

    Advice: Korver is going to miss Monday's game in San Antonio, Thursday's game in Chicago and Friday's game against Philadelphia, and with the Cavs saying "at least three games," it seems there's a good chance he could miss Sunday's matchup with Indiana as well. Iman Shumpert (knee) will be joining Korver on the sidelines tonight, so J.R. Smith should get all the minutes he can handle. At this point in the fantasy season, Korver isn't worth hanging onto in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:35 pm
    Injured
     
  • Danny Green (rest) will play Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green (rest) will return to the court for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Advice: Green sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, but he'll get back out there tonight, which will likely shift Jonathon Simmons back to the second unit. Gregg Popovich confirmed that he won't be resting any of his main guys for Monday's game, so if you own LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard or Pau Gasol, feel free to get those guys active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Lance Thomas (hip) out Monday vs. Detroit
    Lance Thomas (sore right hip) will not play Monday vs. Detroit.

    Advice: This will be Thomas' third consecutive game watching from the sidelines, and while his MRI came back clean, he should still be considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Miami. Thomas' minutes will continue to be divvied up between Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:57 pm
    Injured
     
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) will play on Monday
    Carmelo Anthony (left knee) will play Monday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Anthony has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a sore left knee, but he'll get back out there tonight, which will likely result in Mindaugas Kuzminskas returning to the second unit. Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis also won't be quite as active on offense with Melo out there. Anthony owners can feel free to get him active for a favorable matchup against Detroit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:52 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) doubtful for Tuesday
    Brandon Ingram (right knee) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Corey Brewer got the start in Ingram's place on Sunday, but only managed to contribute three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes, so while he could be looking at another start on Tuesday night, he's not a very attractive target in most scenarios. David Nwaba and Larry Nance Jr. figure to pick up some extra minutes if Ingram is out again on Tuesday, with Nance offering the most upside out of that group. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:46 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) will be re-evaluated Thurs
    Kyle Korver (foot) said he will be re-evaluated prior to Thursday night's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Korver will not play Monday vs. San Antonio, so J.R. Smith should be looking at minutes in the 30s tonight. Korver has now undergone two MRIs on his sore left foot, both of which have come back clean, but he acknowledged that his foot "never really felt all the way right," when he returned on March 19 from a seven-game absence. With the Cavs focused on the Finals, Korver may not play again during the regular-season, so he's a cut candidate in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:36 am
    Injured
     
  • Taurean Prince expected to start again Tues
    Mike Budenholzer said that Taurean Prince will more than likely earn another start on Tuesday vs. Phoenix.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will all be on the sidelines for Tuesday's game, so it would be surprising if Prince weren't in the starting lineup. In his first career start on Sunday, Prince popped off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes, so he'll be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:22 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) targeting Wednesday?
    Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Reggie Bullock (foot) out Monday
    Reggie Bullock (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: He's been diagnosed with a sprained right foot and is currently in a walking boot. Bullock was averaging 13.3 minutes over his last four games, so Stanley Johnson will likely pick up a few extra minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 am
  • Kyle Korver (foot) ruled out for Monday
    Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:12 am
    Injured
     
  • Durant (knee) will have minute restrictions
    Kevin Durant (knee) will have minutes restrictions if he is cleared to return to the court.

    Advice: "It’s something we’ll consult the training staff on," head coach Steve Kerr said. "I imagine we’ll ease him back by playing him shorter minutes to start, so he can build up his rhythm and his conditioning." Durant's timetable is still murky, but he's scheduled to be re-evaluated by team doctors in less than a week and it sounds like there's a good chance he will return before the end of the regular season. Durant has been seen running wind sprints, shooting jumpers and even dunking, but his return will likely come when most fantasy seasons have concluded. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:12 am
  • Corey Brewer starts for Brandon Ingram (knee)
    Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:38 pm
  • Andre Iguodala posts all-around gem vs. MEM
    Andre Iguodala had a hyper-efficient game on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers for 20 points, while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Iguodala logged 32 minutes tonight and he's been critical to the Warriors' success since Kevin Durant went down. For what it's worth, Steve Kerr didn't explicitly rule out resting Iguodala over the next week, which includes a back-to-back set vs. the Spurs and Rockets. He has been awesome lately, and owners should simply monitor his status prior to each of Golden State's games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) logs 18 minutes
    Gerald Henderson (hip) played 18 minutes during Sunday's 107-94 loss in Indiana, going 2-of-6 from the field for five points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Henderson's hip has been a nagging issue for most of the season, and it's somewhat surprising that Philly hasn't simply shut him down. He's little more than a veteran mentor at this point, setting an example for his neophyte teammates, and the vast majority of fantasy owners can do better on the wire. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:15 pm
  • Corey Brewer starting for Brandon Ingram
    Corey Brewer will start Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (patellar tendinitis).

    Advice: David Nwaba should also get a significant boost with Ingram on the sidelines, and we might even see Nick Young or Metta World Peace get a few minutes. This is a situation to avoid in the vast majority of fantasy scenarios. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:05 pm
  • Brandon Ingram out for Sunday's game
    Brandon Ingram (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers due to patellar tendinitis.

    Advice: With Ingram out of the lineup, it is still being determined who will take his place. Head coach Luke Walton said he has not yet decided who will be included in the starting five. However, it's likely David Nwaba picks up plenty of minutes with Ingram on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:55 pm
  • Khris Middleton gets 14 points on 17 shots
    Khris Middleton needed 17 shots to score 14 points on Sunday, connecting on six attempts while adding six rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers without a turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Middleton had an atrocious night vs. Atlanta on Friday, going 1-of-13 from the field with three turnovers, and he's going through a prolonged slump at a brutal time for fantasy owners. He's too good to struggle much longer, though, and should benefit from a cupcake matchup with the Kings' defense on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Taurean Prince scores 17 points in start
    Taurean Prince matched a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday, adding six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Not a bad start and obviously not having Paul Millsap, Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha helped him get some added run. Plus, it helps to go against the Nets with those extra minutes. Prince still has a lot of work to do as a scorer and he really struggles around the rim, but the opportunity is there for him right now and he's been adept at adding defensive stats. With Millsap and Bazemore in doubt this week, Prince is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:52 pm
  • Danny Green expected to return Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green is expected to return on Monday after sitting out Saturday's game as a precaution.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like the Spurs will rest any of their veterans for Monday's game vs. the Cavaliers, so owners can tentatively deploy them as usual. Dejounte Murray (groin) is the only player currently ruled out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:55 pm
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) ruled out Monday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He's not even making the trip and this will be his third straight game on the shelf. With the Magic playing for lottery balls, it wouldn't be a surprise if the veteran missed more time. Mario Hezonja is getting a nice bump in minutes in Green's absence, but he's only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:34 am

  • Derrick Jones Jr. will come off the bench
    Derrick Jones Jr. will return to the bench on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This is an expected move with T.J. Warren (foot) back. Jones Jr. has shown flashes as a defender and a finisher around the rim, but he's still a little too raw on offense to help most fantasy owners. He belongs on the wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:38 am
  • Taurean Prince will start on Sunday vs. BKN
    Taurean Prince will start on Sunday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This will be the rookie's first career NBA start. With Paul Millsap (knee), Kent Bazemore (knee) and Thabo Sefolosha (groin) all out, Prince does have some streaming appeal with per-36 minute averages of 11.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 triples. He's looking at a heavy workload this afternoon and does offer plenty of upside in the money categories. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:10 am
  • Gerald Henderson is available Sunday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) is available to play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He sat out of the morning shootaround and is likely battling some soreness in his hip. Henderson will likely pick up some DNPs down the stretch, so he belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:34 am
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 29 points vs. Knicks
    Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:56 pm
  • Ndour gets some run vs. Spurs
    Maurice Ndour scored three points with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: The Forest Moon actually started the second half, which was most likely due to Kristaps Porzingis being in foul trouble. Unless the Knicks go in heavy shutdown mode, leave Ndour on the wire. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:18 pm
  • LeBron James scores 24 points in loss to Wiz
    LeBron James (eye) scored 24 points during a 127-115 loss to the Wizards on Saturday, adding 11 rebounds, eight assists, one block and three turnovers in 41 minutes.

    Advice: He had some goggles on to start the game, but he ditched them in the first quarter after he missed a 3-pointer. After this loss, the Cavs are now just 0.5 games ahead of the Celtics in the standings. A big reason why has been their defense, giving up a league-worst 115.0 defensive rating in their last 14 games. LeBron's fantasy owners can view this as a positive because he's less likely to be rested late. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:32 pm
  • Kyle Korver doesn't get much vs. Wizards
    Kyle Korver scored 10 points with two rebounds and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: His playing time didn't change much even with Iman Shumpert (knee) not playing in this game. Korver isn't getting enough usage or minutes to be counted on while the Cavs are close to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:13 pm
    Injured
     
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) ruled out on Saturday
    Carmelo Anthony (left knee) will not play against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: His troublesome sore left knee will keep him out for his second consecutive game. The Knicks have almost no chance at the postseason and actually moved up to the No. 5 spot in the lottery, so they may try to tank it and get all the way up to No. 4. Melo should be considered questionable for Monday at home against the Pistons. While he's out, Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Kyle O'Quinn will benefit. Daily Slant: Kuzminskas and Porzingis have played 260.7 minutes together without Anthony. Kuzminskas delivers 0.75 FanDuel points per minute and Porzingis sees a 2.1% increase in usage and a 16.1% rise in FD ppm. Kuzminskas picked up 32 minutes in his last start and could do the same here. Of course, the Spurs are a great defensive team - the Knicks’ implied total of 94.75 is 10.35 below their average – so both players are better for tournaments than cash.

  • Rodney Hood has another rough day
    Rodney Hood made 4-of-13 from the field for nine points with four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He has not shown up since returning from his knee soreness, averaging 7.7 points, 3.0 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.0 treys on just 33.3 percent from the field in those three. Joe Ingles has outplayed Hood for the majority of the season and his knee issue may be the reason. Regardless, Hood isn't a fantasy option for most owners in this crucial part of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:15 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 14 points
    Joe Johnson scored 14 points with three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He was really the only guy to step up on the perimeter for the Jazz. Johnson has been fairly inconsistent lately and this was his first game above 42 percent from the field since Mar. 13. He will likely be coming off the bench against the Pelicans on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:12 pm
  • Joe Ingles hurts right elbow
    Joe Ingles (right elbow) scored one point with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He looked to suffer a non-contact injury to his non-shooting elbow and left the game after the injury. Ingles didn't get treatment or medical attention after he checked out, and he did return shortly afterwards. For now, Ingles sounds like he's going to be OK. If Gordon Hayward (knee) does need to miss time, Ingles would be asked to step up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:04 pm
  • Brandon Ingram listed as questionable
    Brandon Ingram (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday against the Blazers.

    Advice: Ingram did not finish the Friday game, but he looked fine in his 30 minutes of action. He also said he is going to play in this game, but we'll see how the coaching staff feels about that. Plus, the Lakers are only up 0.5 games on the Suns for the No. 2 spot in the lotto. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:02 pm
  • LeBron James (eye) will play against Wizards
    LeBron James (right eye corneal abrasion) will play against the Wizards on Saturday night.

    Advice: He gets the all clear before warmups are completed, so all signs point to LeBron not having a limitation against the No. 3 seed Wizards. James and the Cavs only have a 1.0 game lead over the Celtics, so they could use a win. Additionally, the Raptors, Wizards and Celtics have the easiest remaining schedules in the NBA. Go ahead and fire up LeBron in what should be a close game. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:54 pm
  • Kent Bazemore out again for Sunday
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He was expected to miss 7-10 days, so he was not expected to play since that prognosis back on Mar. 19. With Bazemore out at least one more, Tim Hardaway Jr. should see all the run he can handle while Thabo Sefolosha, Mike Dunleavy and Taurean Prince pick up the scraps on the wing. Bazemore should be dropped in most leagues. Prince has the most value of that bunch and gets a great matchup on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:06 pm
  • LeBron James (eye) could be a game-time call
    LeBron James (eye) could be a game-time call for Saturday against the Wizards and is listed as questionable.

    Advice: He suffered a scratched cornea on Friday in the third quarter and was able to return to the game. This is a home game on a back-to-back set, so there is a chance he doesn't play in this important game for Eastern Conference seeding. If you're into factoring in the Las Vegas spreads, it does seem to be more towards the Wizards than you might expect, so perhaps the folks in Vegas think LeBron could miss this one. We should have an update at around 6:00 EDT.Daily Slant: Even with Kevin Love on the floor (249.1-minute sample), Irving’s rate increases 9.8% to 42.4% when LeBron is off and he delivers 1.39 FanDuel points per minute. Love gets a smaller bump, but he enjoys a 6.1% increase in FD ppm. Irving would be a top option in all formats. Love is riskier, but should get solid minutes and the Wizards are 24th in DvP against PFs; he’d be a great tournament option. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:40 pm
  • Danny Green (rest) will not play vs. Knicks
    Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:44 am
  • Lance Thomas (hip) ruled out for Saturday
    Lance Thomas (sore right hip) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game Thomas has missed. With the Knicks prioritizing lottery balls over wins, they have no reason to rush back one of their vets. Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn will see an uptick in minutes with Thomas sidelined. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:12 am
    Injured
     
  • Anthony & Rose questionable for Saturday
    Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) and Derrick Rose (sore right foot) are all listed as questionable in the game notes for Saturday's matchup vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Melo sat out Thursday's game vs. the Blazers, but it was widely believed that was primarily for rest purposes. As always, it is unwise to read too much into the game notes. Thus, we will have to wait for a formal update from coach Jeff Hornacek following the team's shootaround on Saturday. Mindaugas Kuzminskas will likely draw the start if Anthony is unable to suit up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:38 am
  • Brandon Ingram returned to action on Friday March 24. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:00 am
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) plans to play Sunday
    Brandon Ingram (right patellar tendinitis) said he was sore after Friday's game but that he "can manage it" and will play Sunday vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Ingram has been dealing with nagging tendinitis recently and was forced to sit out the second half of Friday's win over the Wolves. However, it appears it's simply an issue of pain tolerance, and he says he'll be ready to roll on Sunday. Still, it's tough to put too much trust in Ingram going forward, as the Lakers have no reason to overextend their prized rookie at the end of a lost season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:29 am
  • LeBron James (eye) uncertain for Saturday
    LeBron James suffered a scratched cornea in his right eye on Friday and may miss Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: LeBron was poked in the eye by Jeremy Lamb in the final minute of the third quarter of Friday night's win over the Hornets. He was able to return to the game but then fell hard on his lower back in the fourth quarter. After the game, LeBron said his vision was blurry and was unable to keep his right eye open. "If coach decides to give me a game off [Saturday], it's not because I'm resting," said James. "It's because I'm banged up." Check back, as we should have an official update from the team following Saturday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:16 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores nine points
    Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:10 am
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return to Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: This was announced during overtime, so he was probably on a minutes restriction -- he was icing his knee on the bench down the stretch. Ingram is dealing with tendinitis, so it shouldn't be a long-term issue and he will likely be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers. The rookie scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and a triple in 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:05 pm
  • Middleton shoots 1-of-13, Bucks win anyways
    Khris Middleton shot 1-of-13 from the field and only scored six points, but the Bucks won their third straight game in a 100-97 win over the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: With the win, the Bucks are now tied with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed in the East. Middleton played 32 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three turnovers, but this will likely be an outlier in what has been an incredible month -- he was averaging 18.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 triples in his previous 13 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. plays 32 minutes
    Derrick Jones Jr. (wrist) scored seven points with four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He reportedly had a right wrist injury, but Jones Jr. did have his left wrist taped during this game. He sure can dunk and he has a good frame to potentially be a wing defender, but Airplane Mode has some work to do as a contributor. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:49 pm
  • LeBron James (eye) questionable for Saturday
    LeBron James scored 32 points with 11 assists and nine rebounds in Friday's 112-105 win over the Hornets, but he was poked in the right eye and is dealing with some swelling.

    Advice: LeBron also took a hard fall tonight and landed on his back, but he did finish the game. Cavs reporter Jason Lloyd said James can barely open his right eye and that he is going to have his eyes/vision checked by a specialist. We'll look for more updates, but he should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards. James finished 9-of-14 from the field and 14-of-16 from the line with two blocks, one steal and four turnovers in 40 minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:46 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) will play Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) will play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: With the Lakers tanking, Ingram's knee issue must be very minor if they are letting him play through it. With averages of 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists over his last nine games, he's a decent option if you don't mind his poor free throw percentage. The Lakers will keep their same starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:55 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. in the starting lineup
    Derrick Jones Jr. is in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He was reportedly not expected to play, but he'll be out there to start. Jones Jr. hurt his right wrist on Thursday night and needed X-rays. He is likely to be limited today and isn't a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:40 pm
  • Jeff Green (back) ruled out Friday vs. DET
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: This is the second straight game Green has missed due to low back pain. Mario Hezonja is expected to soak up the majority of minutes left behind by Green. Hezonja played 23 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points and grabbing seven rebounds. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:24 pm

  • Andre Iguodala not on the injury report
    Andre Iguodala (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: After missing the last game on Tuesday, Iguodala could be back for this home game. The Warriors are not on a back-to-bac set, but they really won't need Iggy as 18-point favorites tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:47 pm
  • Kevin Durant doing sprints, some dribbling
    Kevin Durant (knee) was doing some full-court sprints at shootaround on Friday.

    Advice: He was also doing some dribbling moves and some shooting. Durant is coming along faster than expected and it may not be long before he's taking on some contact. There still is no timetable, but a return in early April seems feasible. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:53 am
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) still probable Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) was a full participant in shootaround on Friday and remains listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: This serves as confirmation that Ingram is ready to roll on Friday. He's been putting up solid numbers of late. Ingram has scored in double figures in each of the Lakers last nine games. He is averaging 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists during this current stretch. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:03 am
  • Derrick Jones Jr. (wrist) ruled out Friday
    Derrick Jones Jr. (right wrist) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Jones was injured Thursday night in Brooklyn after he fell on his wrist in an effort to brace himself after a dunk attempt. He headed to the locker room shortly thereafter and was unable to return to the game. With T.J. Warren (foot) also sitting out on Friday, the Suns are extremely shorthanded. They will have only eight players available. Devin Booker will play as many minutes as he can handle and reserves such as Jared Dudley and Jarell Eddie will also see plenty of playing time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:14 am
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) a GTD for Friday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) will be a game-time decision on Friday night vs. Detroit.

    Advice: Green did not play on Wednesday due to the back issue. With Green sidelined, Mario Hezonja logged 23 minutes, finishing with eight points and seven rebounds. Mario would likely see 20-plus minutes again on Friday if Green is unable to play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:23 am

  • Kevin Durant (knee) making steady progress
    Coach Steve Kerr said that Kevin Durant (knee) continues to take encouraging steps in his rehab.

    Advice: Kerr told reporters that Durant "did a little more" on Thursday, including some lateral movement. Kerr also said that Durant would be re-evaluated by doctors next Thursday and the team would provide their "first real update" at the end of next week. It's quite possible KD appears in some regular seasons games next month, but the Warriors will likely limit his minutes if he is able to suit up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:53 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) is 'progressing'
    Dion Waiters (ankle) is reportedly "progressing in the right direction," but there is still no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Waiters has missed three straight games due to the ankle issue. "He’s feeling better," coach Erik Spoelstra said on Thursday. "Some of the swelling is starting to come down. But there still is no timetable." Josh Richardson is the primary benefactor here. J-Rich continues to start and play heavy minutes in Waiters absence. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:30 am
  • Danny Green vanishes in 22 minutes Thursday
    Danny Green disappeared vs. Memphis on Thursday with four points, two assists, one turnover and no other stats to his credit in 22 minutes.

    Advice: We're more than 85 percent through with the regular season, so anyone owning Green should be inured to occasional duds. He's not worth owning in most points leagues, but continues to eke out value in most roto formats. Owners should at least be spared DNP-CDs given his modest playing time and the Spurs' continued pursuit of the No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:47 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. (wrist) getting X-rays
    Derrick Jones Jr. (right wrist) is getting X-rays on Thursday.

    Advice: He had a hard fall on a drive to the basket and came out on the next possession. Jones Jr. had a trainer look at him for a couple minutes before going to the locker room. We should have an update shortly. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:33 pm
  • Lance Thomas (hip) out for Thursday night
    Lance Thomas (sore right hip) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday night.

    Advice: Thomas played 32 minutes in a start on Wednesday and apparently picked up an injury along the way. With Thomas and Carmelo Anthony (knee) out, the Knicks will likely play more Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn next to each other. We should see more Mindaugas Kuzminskas and a little bit of Justin Holiday at the three. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:34 pm
    Injured
     
  • Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose out vs. POR
    Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) and Derrick Rose (sore right foot) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday.

    Advice: It will be Melo's second half off this month and his first March DNP was also due to his sore left knee. With the Knicks quickly falling out of the playoff race, the likelihood of Melo missing games goes up each day. With him out, the Knicks will give some big minutes to Mindaugas Kuzminskas while Kristaps Porzingis should be busy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:29 pm
  • Airplane Mode is starting
    Derrick Jones Jr. will start for T.J. Warren (foot) on Thursday against the Nets.

    Advice: He got the start on Sunday when Devin Booker didn't play, but this time he'll be at his natural SF spot. Jones Jr. doesn't have a perimeter game at all, but his dunks and defense have helped him get minutes. He's going to be a risky DFS target today. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:15 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) in a walking boot
    Dion Waiters (ankle) was in a walking boot on Thursday.

    Advice: The good news is Waiters was not on crutches. The Heat have not revealed a timetable on Waiters, but he's likely out for multiple games. With him out, Josh Richardson should benefit the most while Wayne Ellington should have more shots going his way. J-Rich is worth a long look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:40 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) probable Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) is probable to play against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He did not finish practice due to right patella tendinitis. Ingram had some tendinitis in his right knee back in October, but the rookie has been fairly healthy besides that. In other news, he's starting to be more involved in the offense lately, averaging 16.4 points per game over his last five. He's worth a look in standard leagues while he's playing well. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:34 pm
  • Kevin Durant does some 5-on-0
    Kevin Durant (knee) went through some 5-on-0 drills at practice on Thursday.

    Advice: He was wearing a knee brace for some of his shooting drills and there is no word of him taking on contact yet. On Wednesday, ESPN reported Durant could be back for part of the regular season, so the news today coincides with that. KD is likely going to travel with the team and could be re-evaulated next week. If you can afford to stash KD, it makes some sense. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:31 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) still has no timetable
    Dion Waiters (ankle) still has no timetable to return.

    Advice: The good news is that the swelling is down and coach Erik Spoelstra said he's "feeling better." With Waiters out, Josh Richardson has emerged as the clear pickup in his absence. Richardson is averaging 12.0 points, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.5 steals and 1.5 triples in his last two games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:56 am
  • Rodney Hood struggles in 21 minutes Wednesday
    Rodney Hood had another forgettable game on Wednesday, logging 21 minutes to finish with three points on 1-of-4 shooting, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: Hood was in foul trouble during his return from a knee injury on Monday, but tonight he was the victim of his own inefficiency -- Joe Ingles played 25 minutes, Joe Johnson played 23 minutes, and even Alec Burks logged 19 scoreless minutes. With his uninspiring play and recurring knee soreness, Hood is tough to trust if you're battling for the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:03 pm
  • Joe Johnson shifts to bench on Wednesday
    Joe Johnson shifted to the bench on Wednesday, where he chipped in 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Advice: Derrick Favors (bone bruise) is out indefinitely and the Jazz had been playing well with Johnson in his spot, but they opted to play the matchups with Boris Diaw starting tonight. Johnson logged 23 minutes on Wednesday and should hover in the mid-20s whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:00 pm
  • Lance Thomas quiet in 32 minutes as starter
    Lance Thomas moved into the Knicks' starting unit on Wednesday, where he posted four points, nine rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The Knicks went smaller tonight vs. the Jazz and they jumped out to an early lead thanks to a 34-point first quarter. Thomas isn't a great fantasy option even if he continues to start -- in 14 previous starts this season, he averaged a modest 9.5 points, 1.2 threes, 4.4 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.1 blocks. There are better options on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:42 pm

  • Kyle Korver (foot) scores nine points on Wed
    Kyle Korver (sore left foot) returned to action on Wednesday with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting, including a 3-of-8 mark from downtown.

    Advice: "A lot of my shots are turning over this left shoulder," Korver said, explaining the cause of his recent injury. "That’s kind of the foot I’m planting on more. I think that’s kind of where I get the wear and tear I’ve had over the years." Korver logged 19 minutes in his return but he should be in the mid- to high-20s before long.

  • Gerald Henderson scores four points
    Gerald Henderson scored four points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The 76ers didn't play Henderson on Monday and actually put him in the first unit to start the second half. With the 76ers likely wanting to get a longer look at their younger wings, Henderson won't be playing too much down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Taurean Prince chips in across the board Wed
    Taurean Prince played 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing a road loss with seven points on 3-of-8 shooting, four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The rookie has entrenched himself in coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation, and his role has increased with Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) both out of commission. His ability to chip in threes, steals and blocks is crucial to his fantasy value, and he's worth holding in most roto leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:33 pm
  • Lance Thomas starting vs. Utah on Wednesday
    Lance Thomas is starting against the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Knicks will go with their smaller lineup and put Kristaps Porzingis at the five. Thomas only averaged 9.5 points per game as a starter, so he's not really someone fantasy owners should be using. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:20 pm
    Injured
     
  • Joe Johnson comes off bench w/ Diaw starting
    Joe Johnson will come off the bench vs. New York on Wednesday.

    Advice: Boris Diaw will start and draw the matchup vs. Kristaps Porzingis, but the minute allotment shouldn't change too much here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:03 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) will play against Nuggets
    Kyle Korver (foot) will play against the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It will be his first action since Mar. 6. With Korver back, it'll be interesting to see how coach Ty Lue divides the minutes on the wing. Korver will have a lower upside, but he should be a solid specialist for treys going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:36 pm
    Injured
     
  • Dion Waiters out again for Thursday
    Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Raptors.

    Advice: He's coming along just fine and the team may not give him an MRI this week. As of Wednesday, he doesn't have an MRI scheduled, so maybe Waiters is more day-to-day. Josh Richardson is a solid add in standard leagues and dropped 14 points on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:15 pm
  • Warriors hoping KD can return in season
    Kevin Durant's (knee) progress has the Warriors hopeful he can return before end of regular season, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: KD is doing some on-court work these days, but he still doesn't have a target date. He was expected to miss four weeks, which means his original target window will be at the end of this month. The Warriors would likely ease KD back in and perhaps do so in the first round of the postseason. If you're going to stash him, there's a decent chance he won't make much of an impact upon his return. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:16 pm
  • LeBron James confirms he'll play on Wednesday
    As expected, LeBron James confirmed he will play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: With all the controversy surrounding teams resting their stars, LeBron will likely get asked to confirm that he is playing prior to each game the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:58 am
  • Kyle Korver (foot) questionable Wednesday
    Coach Tyronn Lue said he was unsure whether Kyle Korver (sore left foot) will be able to play Wednesday night vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Korver has not played since March 6th due to the foot injury. He did state that he felt "a lot better" on Tuesday, so Korver is clearly headed in the right direction. We may be looking at a game-time decision Wednesday night. The issue for Korver owners is that even once he is fully healthy and active, Korver will have to divvy up minutes with J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert. Thus, it will be very difficult for him to match the numbers he was putting up his first few weeks in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:58 am

  • Jeff Green (back) will not play Wednesday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This will be just the third game Green has missed all season. However, he has apparently played through back spasms intermittently. Green had been averaging 17.5 minutes per game off the Magic's bench in March. Mario Hezonja will likely soak up the majority of the extra minutes available on Wednesday.

  • Nick Young (illness) picks up a DNP-CD
    Nick Young (illness) picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He was healthy enough to play and coach Luke Walton said he was "available," but they probably wanted to take a look at David Nwaba. Young can be left on the wire in most leagues and this probably won't be his last DNP going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:05 pm
  • Khris Middleton helps Bucks beat Blazers
    Khris Middleton racked up 26 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 11-of-22 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's big 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Wow. He was worth the wait if you stashed him long before he came back and there was some risk involved, as no one was really sure how he'd look or fit in with the new-look Bucks. He's been fantastic, averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. With the Bucks fighting for their playoff life and seeding, Middleton should continue to roll the rest of the way. He's also played in all 12 of the Bucks' March games, scoring in double figures in all of them. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:15 pm

    Tobias Harris returned to form on Tuesday, hitting 10-of-15 shots for 24 points, five rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 36 minutes of a tough two-point loss to the lowly Nets.

    Advice: Harris scored just eight points on Sunday and hadn't scored more than 17 points in his previous five games, so if you rolled with him tonight, chances are you're having a good evening. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:11 pm
  • Nick Young (illness) is 'available' Tuesday
    Nick Young (illness) is "available" for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: When asked if Young would actually play, coach Luke Walton wouldn't commit to it. The Lakers just signed David Nwaba to a two-year deal Tuesday, so Young's illness may give the team an excuse to take a long look at the rookie guard. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:35 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony's minutes to be reduced
    Carmelo Anthony's minutes will be reduced over the final 12 games of the season.

    Advice: The change will be immediate, with Melo playing fewer minutes on Wednesday vs. Utah. "[Coach Jeff Hornacek] mentioned today that he's going to start shortening minutes," Anthony said. Melo did not give details as to exactly how many minutes he might play. He logged only 25 on Monday, but that game was a blowout. The Knicks have a back-to-back on Wednesday and Thursday, so there is a possibility Melo sits out Thursday's contest. "That's not (anything) that we've discussed so far as of yet," Anthony said of missing the second night of a back-to-back. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:47 pm
  • Dion Waiters spotted without walking boot
    Dion Waiters (ankle) was spotted without a walking boot on Tuesday.

    Advice: Waiters is still on crutches, and his ankle is still swollen, but he was at least able to put some weight on his injured left ankle while making his way through the Miami locker room on Tuesday. Waiters remains without an official timetable to return, and him gingerly making his way through a locker room on crutches suggests that he's still not very close, so those without an IR-spot will need to strongly consider moving on from Waiters. Josh Richardson will continue to start in his place. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:51 pm
  • Kyle Korver (left foot) feeling much better
    Kyle Korver (sore left foot) said on Tuesday that he was feeling "a lot better," and "well rested."

    Advice: Korver added that his foot is feeling stronger, and with him getting in a full practice on Tuesday, it's looking like there's a chance we could see him back in action on Wednesday night vs. the Nuggets. Korver was playing well prior to going down, but that was with J.R. Smith on the sidelines, so it could be tough for him to replicate that production fighting for minutes with Smith and Iman Shumpert. We should get another update following shootaround, but this is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:42 pm

  • Andre Iguodala (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of a hip injury for Iggy. We should get an update on its severity soon. Iguodala has missed a few games to rest this season but has been remarkably healthy all year long. With Kevin Durant (knee) already sidelined, this leaves the Warriors a bit thin at small forward. Patrick McCaw and Matt Barnes will both see an uptick in minutes, but it would be difficult to place too much trust in either player. Daily Slant: With Durant and Iguodala off the floor this season, Klay Thompson leads the Warriors in usage at 32.2%, and produces at a 1.17 FPPM clip compared to a 1.11 FPPM mark for back-court mate Stephen Curry. Ian Clark carries a considerably higher usage rate (25.6%) than either Matt Barnes (17.0%) or Patrick McCaw (15.2%) in that split, but targeting any of those three players is best left for GPP play. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:51 am
  • Carmelo Anthony contemplating offseason move
    Carmelo Anthony hinted that he might be willing to waive his no-trade clause this offseason.

    Advice: This year will be the fourth straight season the Knicks have failed to qualify for the playoffs. Speaking with reporters on Monday, Melo was introspective. "Honestly, I think about it a lot," he said. "I try to put everything into perspective. I think about [New York], I think postseason... It makes you want to think about what’s next or what could be next." Melo had been averaging over 36 minutes per game for the last two months but played just 25 in Monday night's blowout. He may be rested once or twice over New York's final 12 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:26 am
  • Lance Thomas returns to bench
    Lance Thomas scored just two points with one assist and one rebound in 15 minutes off the bench against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: Thomas was back to a reserve role with Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) back in action. As such, Thomas is back to having very minimal fantasy appeal. However, with the Knicks all but eliminated from a spot in the postseason the team could shut down some key members and Thomas might return to a starting role. For now, most fantasy owners can leave him to the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:28 pm
    Injured
     
  • Foul trouble limits Rodney Hood
    Rodney Hood (knee) was in the starting five Monday in Indiana, and he finished with 11 points, two rebounds and a pair of 3-pointers over 16 minutes.

    Advice: Hood was limited to 16 minutes due to foul trouble, not his ailing knee. That meant Joe Ingles, who Hood supplanted in the lineup, saw more action. It might be a slow go for Hood to knock off the rust and get back into the swing of things, but he is a decent play when he is active and healthy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:21 pm
  • Joe Ingles adjusts to bench role again
    Joe Ingles came off the bench in Monday's game at Indiana, scoring four points with seven rebounds and five assists over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Ingles wasn't terribly active on the offensive end, but he was busy on the glass and he even recorded a blocked shot. He still logged starter-type minutes as the first option off the bench, although that was partly due to Rodney Hood being in foul trouble. Ingles remains a decent play in deeper fantasy formats even in a reserve role, although obviously his appeal is much higher when Hood is on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:12 pm
  • Joe Johnson dismal from floor
    Joe Johnson misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana, posting just two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal over 31 minutes.

    Advice: Johnson missed all four of his 3-pointer attempts and never did seem to get comfortable. The veteran has now missed 28 of his past 41 field goal attempts for a dismal 31.7 percent from the floor over the past four outings. Until he gets on track he isn't helping in any fantasy format. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 6:43 pm
  • Taurean Prince scores 11 points
    Taurean Prince scored 11 points with four rebounds, one assist and one triple vs. the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: Kent Bazemore (knee) is going to miss at least another week and Paul Millsap has been ruled out for at least one more game, so Prince may continue to be a workhorse. He didn't shoot the ball well tonight (4-of-13 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), but he logged 30 minutes and was the first player off the bench. He averaged 11.5 points, 4.0 boards, 1.3 dimes, 0.8 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 treys in his previous four games, so there's some upside here and he's someone to consider streaming with three more games on the schedule this week. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 6:29 pm
  • Rodney Hood starting, Joe Ingles to the bench
    Rodney Hood (knee) will return to the starting lineup following a two-game stint on the sidelines for Monday's matchup with Indiana, sending Joe Ingles back to the bench.

    Advice: Hood has been a frustrating guy to own this season, but at the very least, he could be someone to consider deploying as a deep league streamer or DFS punt play. George Hill, Gordon Hayward, Joe Johnson and Rudy Gobert will join Hood in the starting five for tonight's game. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 3:31 pm
  • Joe Ingles returns to the bench
    Joe Ingles will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Rodney Hood (knee) is returning to action, but Derrick Favors (knee) is still out. The Jazz are playing more small ball with Joe Johnson at the four, so Ingles should still see a healthy amount of minutes. His upside isn't the greatest when Hood is active, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 3:29 pm
  • Rodney Hood (knee) expected to play Monday
    Rodney Hood (knee) is expected to play Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Hood has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a sore right knee, but it sounds like he'll be back in action tonight, which will likely result in Joe Ingles heading back to the bench and there won't be as many minutes available for Joe Johnson. Hood has been woefully inconsistent this season, but if you've got someone to cut in a deep league, he could be someone to take a flier on. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 2:58 pm
  • Gerald Henderson ruled out Monday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Henderson will no longer play in both games of back-to-back sets, but they only have one more back-to-back set remaining on the schedule. Hendo has been battling through hip soreness, so he could be a shut-down candidate down the stretch. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Robert Covington will log heavy minutes on the wings, but Justin Anderson could see a nice bump as well. Henderson belongs on the wire in most formats. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 2:47 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) ruled out for Tuesday
    Dion Waiters (left ankle) will not play Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Waiters is still on crutches, and while he's hopeful that he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season, he's most certainly going to be looking at a multi-game absence here. Josh Richardson drew the start in his place on Sunday and finished with 10 points, one triple, two dimes, one steal, one block, one board and one turnover in 33 minutes, so he could be worth a look in deep leagues. Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson should also be more active on offense. Unfortunately, Waiters is now a cut candidate in all leagues without an IR-spot. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 1:26 pm
  • Nick Young (illness) practices on Monday
    Nick Young (illness) was a full participant during Monday's practice.

    Advice: Young sat out Sunday's loss to the Cavs, but it looks like there's a good chance he'll be back in action on Tuesday vs. the Clippers. If Swaggy P is able to play, that'll translate to fewer minutes for guys like David Nwaba and Corey Brewer. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 1:03 pm
  • Rodney Hood (knee) questionable for Monday
    Rodney Hood (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He can't shake this knee issue and even if does manage to play tonight, he will likely get some DNPs down the stretch. He's too frustrating to trust in the fantasy playoffs in standard leagues. Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option if Hood is ruled out. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 9:04 am
  • LeBron James returns with 34/7/6 in road win
    LeBron James (rest) posted 34 points (13-of-22 FGs, 5-of-8 FTs) with seven assists, six rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal in 38 minutes during his return on Sunday.

    Advice: LBJ came up clutch, as always, guiding the Cavs past the Lakers in L.A., 125-120. He's likely to get a few more rest games down the stretch, but it helps that Boston is keeping up the pressure -- they're just 2.5 games behind Cleveland, which is the same separation between the Spurs and Warriors in the Western Conference. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:42 pm
  • Corey Brewer grabs nine rebounds Sunday
    Corey Brewer scored nine points with nine rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

    Advice: Brewer had his best game in months, but it is still unlikely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. He is nothing more than a depth play in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:23 pm
  • Update: Nick Young (illness) ruled out Sunday
    Updating a previous report, Nick Young (illness) will not play vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

    Advice: Luke Walton said he wasn't sure who would take over Young's role, but it figures to be split between Jordan Clarkson and Tyler Ennis, with Brandon Ingram possibly playing a few more minutes. Consider Young day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 5:51 pm
  • Nick Young (illness) questionable for Sunday
    Nick Young (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The Lakers are embracing their young guys down the stretch, so it doesn't make much sense to play Young at less than 100 percent. Check back for updates closer to tip-off. If he sits out, expect Jordan Clarkson, Tyler Ennis and Brandon Ingram to cover his minutes. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 4:52 pm
  • Tobias Harris quiet Sunday, shoots 2-of-10
    Tobias Harris has a forgettable game on Sunday, going 2-of-10 from the field to finish with eight points, four rebounds and one block in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Harris earned another start and fantasy owners can give him a pass for tonight's dud since he came in hot, shooting 27-of-40 from the field (67.5 percent) in his previous five games. He's just under 50 percent in March and should bounce back vs. the Heat in Miami on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 4:27 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. quiet as fill-in starter
    Derrick Jones Jr. started Sunday's game in place of Devin Booker (ankle), but he made just 1-of-9 field goals to finish with three points, five rebounds and one block.

    Advice: Booker (ankle), Ronnie Price (leg) and Leandro Barbosa (illness) were all out today, leaving the Suns' bench razor-thin following the shut down of Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight. Jones was lackluster in previous starts, and Booker is day-to-day, so there's no reason to touch him. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 4:17 pm
  • Dion Waiters (left ankle) is on crutches
    Dion Waiters (left ankle) is on crutches and is hoping he can return before the end of the regular season.

    Advice: Waiters said this ankle sprain is worse than his last one and he did break this ankle back in high school. The Heat are going to give him treatment every day and have not provided a timetable on his return. While Waiters is out, Josh Richardson gets a big chance and is starting on Sunday. If you need a guard and the wire dried up, J-Rich could be your guy with his nice upside. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:27 pm
  • Kent Bazemore has right knee bone bruise
    Kent Bazemore has a right knee bone bruise and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Saturday night and did not return. Bazemore had an MRI to confirm the diagnosis and the Hawks will now have to move on to start this week without 40 percent of their starting lineup -- Paul Millsap (knee) is out for two games. With those two out, Ersan Ilyasova will be firing away from three, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get big minutes, Taurean Prince should play more than 20 minutes, the Hawks will likely use Malcolm Delaney at the two and maybe even DeAndre Bembry gets in the mix again. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:34 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. starting for Devin Booker
    Derrick Jones Jr. is starting for Devin Booker (ankle) against the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: The Suns have been using him at the four quite a bit and have not used him at the two, but desperate times call for desperate measures. He still doesn't have a jumper and the majority of his buckets are off dunks. He's still not someone fantasy owners can trust while T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis will be feasting today. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:16 pm
  • Hendo scores nine points vs. Boston
    Gerald Henderson scored nine points with three rebounds and one assist against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He did play some clutch minutes in this game and being the team's best free throw shooter this season helps his case. Still, the 76ers won't be playing him big minutes to get a longer look at their young guys. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:13 pm
  • Kyle Korver remains out
    Kyle Korver (foot) remains out and said there's "still something in" his left foot.

    Advice: "It's getting better but it hasn't come along like I'd hoped," Korver said. "I should've stopped playing on it a week and a half earlier. Now that I'm out, we might as well let it come all the way back, but it just hasn't yet." Considering the Cavs have been careful with their guys, we're likely not going to see Korver for a few games at least. J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert will play a little more. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:45 am
    Injured
     
  • Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday
    Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He's still dealing with some left hip soreness, the same hip he had surgery on in 2015. With Justin Anderson (illness) out Sunday, Hendo could pick up a few extra minutes off the bench. Don't be surprised if he's rested on Monday vs. the Magic, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 8:19 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores 15 off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be one of the sneakiest players in fantasy right now with fourth-round value since the break. Iguodala does a little bit of everything, he's making his free throws at a reasonable rate and his 1.5 steals are top notch for a waiver add. Iggy should hold value for at least a couple weeks, but beware of some possible rest. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:45 pm
  • Khris Middleton scores 11 points
    Khris Middleton scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: The minutes were solid and he likely would've been in the mid-30s had the Bucks been in this game. Middleton is heavily involved in the offense and is playing on the ball a lot more than expected after he said he was focusing more on shooting late in his rehab. We're not expecting him to rest until the Bucks have something clinched, so keep rolling Middleton out there. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:33 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores eight points in start
    Joe Johnson scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz have missed Derrick Favors (knee) more than they thought and have lost three of their last five. Johnson has not exactly performed well in those games, averaging 10.2 points, 4.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys. He's not really a fantasy option and would also lose value once Rodney Hood (knee) comes back. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:30 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 10 points in start
    Joe Ingles scored 10 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz may continue to hold Rodney Hood (knee) out to play it safe for next month, which should allow Ingles to get minutes in the 30s. He was tied for the league lead in 3-point percentage, but going 1-of-5 tonight dropped him to second behind Otto Porter. Ingles is a decent player to ride in the short term, but his value will likely drop once the Jazz are whole again. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:27 pm
  • Taurean Prince scores eight with three blocks
    Taurean Prince scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 31 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: That's multiple blocks in three of his last four games. In that span, Prince averaged 11.5 points, 4.0 boards, 1.3 dimes, 0.8 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 treys. Some of this is due to the Hawks getting blown out and Paul Millsap (knee) not playing gave Prince more minutes at SF, so Prince is still only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:29 pm
  • Kent Bazemore suffers right knee contusion
    Kent Bazemore suffered a right knee contusion in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove to the basket and his had some contact on the drive, but he was walking around fine. He did not return because the game was basically over after his injury. Bazemore did not go to the locker room right away and had the trainer look at him on the bench. Bazemore finished with 12 points, two assists and one block in 32 minutes. This injury didn't look serious. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:23 pm
  • LeBron, Kyrie and Love will not play vs. LAC
    LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will not play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: Another Saturday night national TV game, another night of heavy rest. James and the Cavs start the front end of their back-to-back set and will play again on Sunday. It's possible the Cavs do rest guys for that one because they're rested Kyrie in both games of a back-to-back set earlier this season. LeBron's fantasy owners can expect multiple nights off to close out the regular season. J.R. Smith and Deron Williams should do most of the scoring tonight. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 4:08 pm
  • Kevin Durant getting shots up
    Kevin Durant (knee) was getting shots up at shootaround on Saturday.

    Advice: It's a step in the right direction for the former MVP. Durant is still not close to a return and he is expected to be re-evaluated around Mar. 28. He'll likely need at least a week or two off after that, so he's still unlikely to play this regular season. Pat McCaw, Ian Clark and Matt Barnes have stepped up, but none of them are great pickups. Andre Iguodala has seen his value increase, too. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 12:27 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Sunday
    Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Sunday.

    Advice: He does not have a timetable to return right now and coach Erik Spoelstra had some comments about his shooting guard on Saturday. "He was in the locker room doing treatment pretty much all night, last night, and then early this morning," Spoelstra said. The Heat won't put a grade on it, but it's fair to guess he's going to miss multiple games. With him out, Josh Richardson makes sense as a pickup in standard leagues while Wayne Ellington could be a scoring and threes specialist. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 11:37 am
  • Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday
    Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Hood was removed from Wednesday's game due to knee soreness and was unable to suit up on Thursday. Joe Ingles started in place of Hood on Thursday and logged 36 minutes, finishing with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists. Joe Johnson could also see a few extra minutes with Hood sidelined. If you still own Hood, there are probably more attractive, less frustrating options on your league's waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:02 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) without a timeline
    Coach Erik Spoelstra said Dion Waiters (ankle) is currently without a timeline to return.

    Advice: Waiters sprained his left ankle late in the second quarter and had to be carried off the court. Coach Spo said the sprain is "similar to the way he did last time. There's no timeline on it. There's no way to really tell until we get to the next day." The previous sprain Spo is referring to sidelined Waiters for three games over six days. We should have an update this weekend, but the safe assumption is that Waiters will likely miss at least a couple of games. Josh Richardson is expected to soak up most of Waiters minutes. Wayne Ellington should also see a bump in playing time. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:18 am
  • Jeff Green scores just two points
    Jeff Green made 1-of-9 from the field for two points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: This is totally unacceptable on St. Patrick's Day. Anyway, Green just doesn't have fantasy value when the Magic are healthy up front. He doesn't even have much when players are out. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:55 pm
    New Player Note
    Jeff Green Orl - SG,SF,PF
    Injured
     
  • Derrick Jones Jr. returns
    Derrick Jones Jr. scored six points with two rebounds against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He was up to his high-flying ways and had another fall in this game. Jones Jr. is improving on defense and 19 of his 28 makes are dunks, so he's good for a highlight basically every night. He doesn't have much fantasy value, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:29 pm
  • Khris Middleton scores season-high 30 points
    Khris Middleton scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He missed his only two 3-point attempts, but finished 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line with two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Middleton has played 30+ minutes in nine out of his last 10 games and hasn't rested since Feb. 27, so double check to make sure he's active for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors in Golden State. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:24 pm
  • Nick Young ejected on Friday
    Nick Young was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Bucks for shoving Malcolm Brogdon.

    Advice: The shove resulted in his second technical and ruined what could've been a great night for Swaggy P. He started at SG and played through a sprained left ring finger, finishing with 16 points, three rebounds, two assists and four triples in 29 minutes. The Lakers are still experimenting with different lineups and Young will have a low floor on the nights when his shot isn't falling, so he's just a 3-point specialist. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 9:40 pm
